the population of the united states of america seems to be something that every politician has known here literally for hundreds of years. and to have a guy go in front of an audience and say you know what? 47%, forget about them. >> who cares about them, screw them. what george w. bush did there is presidential. what barack obama did on election night when he acknowledged the fact about half the country didn't vote for him, that he was going to try everything in his power as president of the united states to win them over, to ensure that he would be able to govern the country, you know, as one. and here you have the republican presidential nominee who very -- unnervingly comfortable talking about the 47% in such an undignified sarcastic -- not sarcastic -- condescending way. just writing them off completely. he didn't have the decency to say i'm not talking about all 47%, but maybe some of them. he didn't do that. but what he said in that one clip was unpresidential and how he can think he win over enough people to become president of the united states is beyond me. >> i want to play ano

information in may that there was a cell in the united states that was planning to strike. they were getting information that it was going to be a big operation. there were going to be mass casualties. one of the big problems you had, though, was getting past the level of disbelief. you have to remember that the bush administration came in. the republicans had been out of the white house. during that time national security went from countries to being about guys on the tops of mountains in afghanistan. they just didn't buy it. so when you had the cia coming in and saying al qaeda, the pentagon pushed back and said, no, no. it's a fake. bin laden isn't a real threat. he's just trying to gin stuff up so we don't pay attention to iraq. >> kurt, speaking of iraq, one of the things that i'm still trying to figure out is how exactly and why exactly we ended up going to war with iraq. can you take us behind the scenes in that decision-making process? >> the decision-making process was really ugly. there are a few things that come out in "500 days." one is that the defense intelligence agency did an
